"Immemorial" as written by Mikael Bengt Stanne, Martin Brandstrom, Anders Jivarp, Niklas Bo Sundin and Martin Henriksson....
Between the white and the black
Where the grey interacts
Within the margin of reason and lies
A line must be drawn

Fear of an opposing
Thought is ours
Ages upon ages of distrust
Feed the war machine
That’s in our minds
Fundamental truths
Now set aside
Territorial immemorial

The anger attached to the bone
Digs in deep and poisons the core
The scorn of the nefarious scribe
Must be heard through the ages

Tune the instrument to reasons light
Measure what is equal, what is right
The venom spreads itself
Through thought and word
Boundless and protective
At the core
Territorial immemorial

Break momentum again
The forces of will is upon us
If man is the measure
Then anything goes

Draw from and interpret the absurd
Borne on antiquated lost ideals
From the oppressor
To the blinded prisoner
Our goals are just the same
Territorial immemorial

    My InterpretationVery briefly, I would say it's about war.
    It does mention 'war machine', but also the concept of white and black- i.e. right and wrong (we are right, our enemy is wrong) and that in war, many of the rights/ wrongs we know are turned to grey- i.e. killing others is clearly wrong, but in war soldiers and not only encouraged to kill, killing is a necessity!
    Wars are often fought for territory (Vietnam war, WW2 etc) as well.
    Ideals- political differences and power are also key instigators of war- 'antiquated lost ideals from the oppressor'- the leader of a nation or political party who has lost touch with their people and have turned into a tyrant.
